Saints name under-18s side for trip to Midlands West

Head coach Charlie Reed has named his side as Saints take on Midlands West in Round 4 of their Premiership Rugby U18 Academy League campaign on Saturday (13 January, kick-off: 2pm).

After a narrow loss to Sale Sharks last weekend, Reed’s side are looking to get back to winning ways as they face Midlands West at Stourport High School.

Reed makes two changes to last weekend's side, with Edoardo Todaro coming in at full back to replace James Pater, who drops to the bench, with the other change to the starting 15 seeing Harry Price come in at blindside flanker, replacing Rhys Harries, who moves to the bench.

Joining Todaro in the back three are wingers Louis Burns and Rafe Witheat, who both scored in last weekend’s defeat.

Captain Billy Pasco and Ben Agbenu continue in the centres, with Agbenu also coming off the back of scoring last weekend.

Jonathan Weimann continues at scrum-half partnering Louis Haley at fly-half, with Haley kicking all six conversions last time out.

The front row and second row are unchanged, Tom Dye, Robert Gaffan and Reon Gilbert-Joseph packing down at one, two and three and Thomas Ross remaining alongside James Barrett in the second row.

Price comes in at blindside flanker, alongside Kieran Perkins and number 8, Alfie Hoyles.
